Owners of this luxury yacht just so happen to be Mr. and Mrs. Heesen. Frans Heesen, the former owner and founder of the shipyard began the project back in 2010 when he appointed Bannenberg and Rowell, known for creating eclectic yet pleasing integrated atmospheres, to design the interiors of the new yacht.
While the christening brought joy to many, mixed emotions were felt as Mr. Heesen took the opportunity to announce his retirement from official functions in his company.
“It time for me to enjoy life with my family and friends” said Heesen. “I am going to be the Brand Ambassador of this wonderful company that I found some 35 years ago. I will always be there to support the brand and promote it to the end of my days!”
